Podcast #186: Nasty Women
The New York Public Library Podcast features your favorite writers, artists, and thinkers in smart talks and provocative conversations. Listen to some of our most engaging programs, discover new ideas, and celebrate the best of today’s culture.
On today's episode: the co-editors and select contributors of the new essay collection Nasty Women: Feminism, Resistance, and Revolution in Trump's America. The book features original contributions from 23 leading feminist writers, including Rebecca Solnit, Cheryl Strayed, Sarah Hepola, Nicole Chung, Katha Pollitt, Jill Filipovic, Samantha Irby, and Randa Jarrar. Nasty Women asks the question: When 53 percent of white women voted for Donald Trump and 94 percent of black women voted for Hillary Clinton, how can women unite in Trump’s America?
The conversation was moderated by Anna Holmes, who is the founder of Jezebel and current director of Topic at First Look Media. It was divided into two parts. She spoke first with the book's editors, Kate Harding, the founder of Shapely Prose, and Samhita Mukhopadhyay, the former Editorial Director of Identities at Mic.
Later they were joined by three of the book's contributors:
- Kera Bolonik, Editor-in-Chief of Dame Magazine
- Zerlina Maxwell, Director of Progressive Programming for Sirius XM
- Meredith Talusan, freelance journalist and columnist, VICE
